Save money on furniture when you purchase it by looking ahead to the day when you may want to put slipcovers on it.   Slipcovers look best on furniture with classic lines.

Frugal footnotes:

Here are some frugal tips to save money with slipcovers.

 

- Many stores now sell slipcovers, including IKEA.  They now sell them for a variety of
furniture styles, including the style pictured above with the loose pillows on the back.
 
- The Internet has many sites where you can purchase slipcovers.
 
- Many slipcovers have prints and are very cute. However, like wallpaper, they will go out
of style quickly.  Stick to a classic color, and use quilts, pillow and throws for more pattern and color.  A good slipcover will serve you well for many years.
